Christmas presents

I made this card for this week's Winter Wonderland challenge which is 'Christmas Presents' and also for the 52 {Christmas} Card Throwdown challenge 'sequins and/or pearls'.  All the papers and embellishments are from my snippets drawer, so I'm also in Pixie's Crafty Snippets Playground.


Upcycled Christmas cards
Gold mirri card
Blue and pink papers
Gold pearls
Gold sparkly ribbon

I layered blue papers to gold mirri card, covering the join with pink paper and a strip of gold sparkly ribbon, before attaching it to a dark blue card blank.   The image and sentiment were upcycled from last year's Christmas cards and attached to the card with foam tape.  To finish, I attached gold pearls to the top and bottom of the card.

A really cute and fun card Kath! Love how all the papers go so well with the cute image too. The little pearls, graduating in size, are a lovely finishing touch. So you upcycled and used up some snippets in one go with this little beauty!
